1 I heard the voice of weeping,
The cry came o’er the sea,
It filled my heart with anguish
To know their misery.
Go forth, go forth with weeping,
The gospel tidings bear;
To ev’ry land and nation,
His matchless love declare.
2 They’re dying by the thousands,
In ignorance of God,
They perish for the mercy
Which comes thro’ Jesus’ blood. [Chorus]
3 Where are the hands to help them?
Who’ll volunteer today,
To leave their friends and loved ones,
And help this curse to stay? [Chorus]
4 I heard the faithful workers,
Responding to the call,
The gospel light to carry
All round this sin-cursed ball. [Chorus]
